Before undergoing back surgery, Plymouth back pain
sufferers will do well to undergo chiropractic care and exercise. Research continues
to share the value
of non-surgical care for back pain relief. Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology is
the chiropractic care office in Plymouth for both!
CHIROPRACTIC SPINAL MANIPULATION BEFORE BACK SURGERY
Self-care is frequently suggested
as initial treatment for back pain patients. If that does
not produce the desired results, adding non-drug
therapy for acute low back pain – spinal manipulation – and for chronic or subacute
back pain – spinal manipulation, intensive interdisciplinary rehab, exercise,
acupuncture, massage, yoga, cognitive behavioral therapy - is recommended
by medical physician organizations like the American College of Physicians
and American Pain Society. (1) Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology uses
a gentle, evidence-based spinal manipulation treatment called Cox® Technic to relieve back pain that may well help
Plymouth back pain sufferers evade back
surgery and manage their back pain more independently.
EXERCISE FOR BACK PAIN RELIEF
Back pain sufferers would like to help themselves
as much as possible. Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology knows this. Exercise is shown beneficial for non-surgical
pain relief for patients with spinal stenosis. (2) The right form
of exercise is vital, so we’ll talk
about what’s proper for you! Maybe
Pilates would be your “thing”. A study of chronic
musculoskeletal pain patients who tried a Pilates-based
exercise program discovered that the pain patients better functioned
and managed their pain condition more autonomously
and effectively. They did better at work, enjoyed hobbies more, were inspired to keep exercising,
did more to manage their own pain conditions without
outside help. These, in turn, motivated them to experience
a healthier lifestyle. (3) These benefits arose
without back surgery.
EXERCISE BEFORE BACK SURGERY
Researchers set up a trial of exercise for
back pain patients headed to back surgery. They explained
the back pain condition to the patients carefully. They set
up exercise programs for each patient to do. They
found that back pain patients who underwent
this pre-surgery program of explanation and exercise gained
benefit in several ways: The back pain sufferers noticed improvement
exercising than being inactive while waiting for surgery. The back pain
sufferers’ frame of mind improved as they exercised. They had time to contemplate their treatment and lifestyle options. Even patients who did not
report symptom improvement responded well to this
program as they thought themselves more confident managing their pain themselves. (4)
These are all beneficial outcomes Plymouth back pain
patients find in their chiropractic care at Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology.
Control not cure is a realistic objective when dealing
with back pain.
